When I started Greenling 8 years ago it was with a simple-sounding mission – to make Local & Organic foods more accessible, helping repair our broken food system. I thought it would take a couple of years. Soooo, yeah, it’s really broken. But with twice-a-week delivery, prices comparable to the grocery store, fully customizable baskets, only a $25 minimum, and free home delivery, we’re just plain tickled to be able to provide such a convenient way to eat better.
I am astounded by the amazing people that have rallied around that idea. From the amazing farmers who not only grow the best food in the land but have always been so gracious and supportive; to the growing Greenling team who lovingly make sure each item gets treated with care from farm to your doorstep; to YOU, the most important part of this whole system. We’re humbled and inspired by each person we speak with- thank you for sharing your passion for sourcing real food, without chemicals and additives, for yourself and your family. We’re so excited to help play a role in changing diets and lives for the better in the Houston community that we’re giving 100 lucky people a free basket just for giving us a try (see more details below)! True to Texas, we’ve been met with warm, welcoming arms.
So, here is our pledge to you: We promise to bring you only the best food around, investigating every item so you don’t have to (we can sniff out GMOs from miles away and make them feel like the kid in the 80′s outfit showing up to a hipster party). We promise to source it as close as possible. We’re not trucking this stuff down from Austin. We’ve got a facility right here in Houston and are sourcing from Houston farms. We promise to give small, local farmers a fair price and support them in their work. We promise to do everything we can to help rebuild sustainable local food systems. And we promise to help you, in any way we can, to eat healthier and to spend more time doing things other than sitting in traffic, waiting in lines, and going to the store. We look forward to talking with you and meeting you at local food happenings, and we thank you so much for your support of the Organic and local food system!
